Something Rotten Auditions
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten. Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz. Something Rotten features large song and dance numbers, and a wacky cast of over-the-top characters, each given his or her own special moment in the show to shine.
I am looking for a diverse company ranging in age from 18+. This is a heavy male show, but I have no problem (nor do the Playwrights) changing the gender of some characters or casting females in male parts, that need to be played as men with permission of the playwrights. The ensemble/chorus in this show has the opportunity to show off their skills with some the the best numbers in the show.
